Created in 1890, Sequoia National Park is home to the largest trees on earth and the tallest peak in the contiguous United States. At 404,063 acres and over 90% of designated wilderness, Sequoia offers over 800 miles of hiking trails. This park protects the Giant Forest, which has the world's largest tree, General Sherman, as well as four of the next nine tallest. It also has over 240 caves, the tallest mountain in the lower 48, Mount Whitney, and the granite dome Moro Rock.

Beautiful easy trail. There were several trees that were more impressive than Gen Sherman

Hiked late May. Couldn't make it but more than 3 miles in before the snow got impossible. But there is a great view about 2.5 miles in that's spectacular! As long as you're willing to hike thru some snow! Wear either waterproof shoes or just be ready for wet socks.

This was really gorgeous and quite easy. The views of the waterfall are great, and I loved being able to feel the mist and cool off a bit. Would be great for the whole family.

A really lovely hike. The trail can be as quick or as leisurely as you like, and I imagine it'd be one of the better trails for kiddos. I hiked this last weekend, which seems to be the last cool weekend before summer heat. It'll probably be uncomfortably warm from now until autumn, unless you start very early in the morning.

Trail is moderate not easy. Easy because it is virtually flat. Very few incline/decline. But, due to rocky terrain we give it moderate. Not to mention a few drop offs right to the edge of the trail. Otherwise, very peaceful and scenery is wonderful. The sound of the river lulls you to sleep. Be aware of tics though. This trail is loaded with them. Overall we gave it a 3 star rating. Happy Hiking....

Beautiful trail through the Sequoia trees. The climb wasn't bad. You do have to climb under some big trees that fell on the trail.
Took my 4 & 10 year olds. They did great.

Take breaks going up the stairs if you need to. The view is beautiful regardless, but would be much better on a clear day.

Love this trail. 7.8 mile total. 2,800 elevation gain. Not kids friendly. Pretty tough , single trail over the drop off. Last 200 ft you have to scramble over rocks . View of the falls are amazing. It was foggy , misty and raining on May 17,2017 . Saw a few hikers on trail otherwise pretty isolated. Watch out for poison oaks and ticks. We had no problem but there are abundant around the trail. Rainforest like area , tones of wild flowers all around the trail. Some creeks running across the trail. Really beautiful.

Very nice hike for all ages. I've done it three times with my family including 5/6 year old with no problems.
